gross was in prison four years ago in cuba. now in a new letter he appeals for president obama to personally intervene in his case saying extraordinary steps have been taken for other americans. the letter will be delivered today. part of a new strategy by his family to put direct pressure on the white house. a copy was given to "the washington post." >>> major snowstorm is set to hit part of the country! >> i know. it doesn't feel that like here. it's warm here. >> it is. indra petersons is covering that for us. >> i want to give you a jump-start. >> this is bad news? >> i have to start off the top with it. >> look at her smiling. >> 51 right now. that is our high today. i want to take you guys to saturday. notice where it's cold and look at the rest of the country. diving down. dallas in the 30s and st. louis the 20s and we're in the 40s. compared to everyone else, everything is relative, right? i like you think it looks good. a reason for this. we know the storm out in the pacific northwest is changing a lot and continue to push off to the east and the south today and let's
employer mandate. however, a new poll shows one key group president obama was hoping would sign up for coverage the so-called young invincibles is the least informed about the law. gallop finds 63% of adults under the age of 30 say they are familiar with the law. that's nine points lower than any other group suggesting the white house still has a lot of work to do. and yesterday, during a google hang out, senator john cornyn accused the obama administration of lying on a number of issues including the benghazi raid and obama care. >> i think the current administration has taken lying to a new level. the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably false information and expect to move on. we've seen that most recently in the health care debate over if you like what you have you can keep it. something we can go back to 2010 and demonstrate that the department of health and human services knew was false. >> jim, he's running for re-election next year. >> is that an excuse. >> a lot of democrats running in the south and i think you guys have the story on this, a lot
obama's new health fix-it man. a post just went up. can you talk about that? be one of the to white house'lobbyists to capitol hill and was working with congress when they pass the affordable care act. this appears to be a response to a freak out on capitol hill among democrats regarding the issue of people's policies being canceled because they did not meet the rules. may be the white house felt they had some of who is dedicated to this issue and had worked on getting a bill passed with the democratic lawmakers, maybe they could quell this discontent before a republican bill coming up on the house floor. that is what was going on a few weeks ago. from let's go to dan anchorage, alaska. caller: this is dan. my question is about the in theon of dedicated states that turned it down. who decides whether a state turns it down? is if the governor or the legislature of the state? is there any way if the state turned it down that they can change their mind and take it? guest: the answer is it depends on the state. usually the legislature has to pass a bill and the governor has to sign it.
there are differing views, especially since the threat of gun violence and the mass shootings that president obama fears are becoming the new normal are something that affect every american. for more, i'm joined by goldie tayl taylor, whose column breaking bad can be read on the grio and rosenth rosenthal, stop handgun violence, an organization dedicated to the prevention of gun violence. thank you both for being here. john, nbc news is not playing the tapes. we're not going to play them. it's an issue that news organizations have to wrestle with, whether there is news value that would add to the public understanding of what happened or whether it sort of becomes just prurient. based on what you know in the 911 tapes, do you feel there is anything in them we could have learned something new from? >> i absolutely think that we should hear those tapes. and i'll take it a step further. when 26 and 7-year-olds are massacred with an ammunition clip and congress does nothing, absolutely nothing to curtail access to these military weapons, we can't even get a background check requirement for all gun sale
can be so disruptive. such a mess to clean up. indra, thank you so much. >>> president obama embarking on a new health care push. he seed despite the launch of healthcare.gov, americans stand to benefit a great deal from health care. >> the bottom line is, this law is work and will work into the future. people want the financial stability of health insurance. and we're going to keep on working to fix whatever problems come up in any start up, any launch of ail project this big that has an impact on one-sixth of our economy, whatever comes up, whatever comes up, we're going to just fix it. >> meanwhile, former president bill clinton clarifying that promise that he made about president obama should keep their health plans. bill clinton said it was not designed to distance himself from the health care law in effort to help his wife hillary's 2016 presidential ambitions. >> i said nothing about this, not one word, until the president himself spoke. i don't think you can find anybody in america whose worked harder for his election or supported his bill or went out of the way to explain it t
to be spent, invested into new businesses. that's the genesis of economic growth. capital investments. >> while small businesses are getting hurt, the big businesses have been doing fine. in fact, look what happened with the obama recovery compared to the bush expansion. the top one percent, we're hearing a lot about them, they had an expansion of 65% during bush. during the obama so called recovery they got 93%. so the rich have all these special deals which is helping them get more money while the poor are losing. >> i hear what you are saying. here's the thing. we see time and again these poll significances say we do want pro growth economic policies but they show up in washington d.c. and i think they got some kind of stockholm syndrome where they do their krony capitalism to redistrict and that doesn't work. mike is right. all new job creation over the last decade or so comes from the small business startups and, boy, they're getting crushed and it's really, really bad. we are penalizing success and by the way, david, we have been at this with the president doing stimulus, $3 and
for obama care.gov and they still can't get it rig. >> fox news by the way is more efficient than what ted turner created. i had to throw that in, forgive me. it is simple though. basically in the private sector you have a bottom line. in the public sector it's just a bottomless pit, right? >> that's right. it's not simply that the private sector does it better but that they are constantly looking for ways to be more innovative, more effective. when you look at the cyber monday sales from this year, they're increased by 17 and a half percent over last year and making it easier for people to purchase through their tablets, their phones. this is someing that completely eludes the federal government. >> rick, let me put out hope here. the president has a lot of contacts in silicon valley, any chance he can get some of those guys working on his website? >> i'm told there is a number of people from silicon valley involved so far. we still have issues on the back end but they're addressing them. >> quickly, john, go ahead. >> i think he got the people from web van, but the bigger picture here is

, that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. >> president obama did not introduce any new policies, but he did reiterate his strong support for raising the federal minimum wage, which stands at a paltry $7.25 an hour. >> there are fast food workers and airport workers and retail sales assistants who work their tails off and are still living at or barely above poverty. that's why it's well past the time to raise a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. if you work hard, you should be able to support a family. >> polls consistently show that the economy remains the single biggest concern for americans, and now more than ever the concept of a living wage seems to be gaining ground. adjusted for inflation, today's federal minimum wage is a full $3.50 less than the minimum wage of 1968, which stood at $10.60 an hour. for the past month, senate democrats have been working to pass a measure to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour, a plan the white house has now endorsed. already this year, five states have passed measures

democrats, not other republicans. mike lee can win utah, but he probably could not win in new hampshire. chris christie can win in new jersey, but he would have a very hard time winning in alabama. and i don't care how many times or how hard ted cruz can hug barack obama, i don't think he could win the majority of the latino vote, the majority of the women vote, a fourth of the black vote in a blue state like new jersey. i want to win elections. that requires fielding candidates that can win. fielding candidates that fit the population needs, priorities of the places where they are running. a winning republican candidate with whom i agree part of the time is a hell of a lot better than a losing republican candidate with whom i agree all of the time. and because this is new hampshire, i want to make an aside here. kelly ayotte is a winning republican candidate. and she's an even better senator. she is thoughtful, she is courageous, she has brains, she has heart, she has guts. she worries about priorities in new hampshire, not republican primaries in new hampshire. and as ted cruz and the
international concerns about the nuclear program, will be that we immediately ratchet up new sanctions, along with whatever further steps are needed to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, including, as president obama just made clear, a military option if that were necessary. so, there shouldn't be an ounce of doubt. this is a debate we shouldn't be having. the real question is what is going to happen with the final agreement. the united states stands squarely behind our israeli friends and allies in the region and in the world. the result of all these steps we are taking is that iran's breakout time, the period required to produce enough weapons grade material intended for nuclear weapons, will have been increased because of our diplomacy. we are obviously well aware that even a comprehensive agreement would not solve all of our problems with iran. we don't pretend that they do. it wouldn't address their support for hezbollah. it won't deal with syria, although it would have some impact, ultimately. it doesn't deal with other terrorist organizations or their attempt to destabilize
'll leave it with you. how can anybody be opposed to this? the money won't go back to my president obama's friends. it will go to the consumer. t will lower the opportunity costs that hold new and old businesses back and cost detroit billions of dollars a year. if we use numbers from a similar maryland, i estimate storing the storm water that every city ought to do is saving $12.2 million. it will pay for police and fire protection. other things you want in your city. we want people to move to detroit from around the country and around the world. we want to allow immigration to our company where people have capital. people are going to canada because the income tax is 15%. great is getting a lot of entrepreneurs around the world, we're losing them. why? corporate income tax here is 35%. economic enterprise zones would $50,000. the visas with let them come to our country. detroit doesn't need a handout. jobbing now yanet a handout. just look at your history of innovation, look at the proud history of detroit. produced nry ford who a car that assembly line men and he reduced the work week.
in the chaos. but now the second term comes, and what's, i think, frustrating a lot of people who were obama supporters and were excited about him is there doesn't seem to be a clear idea about where he wants to go and how he wants to get there. we know from double down, the new book, that he walks into a staff meeting before the campaign finishes and says i want to go back to my agenda, climate change and immigration and the other things. and they're in a slight state of horror because they know those are not going to be the issues. so what do you think arthur would think about how we've prepared people for going to 1600 pennsylvania avenue and whether obama is somebody that we ought to look at as a model, if you will, about having very high bandwidth but never having done that before? >> well, i will say that that actually is an interesting point because, after all, franklin roosevelt had been governor of new york, so he had that sense of how you run a big organization. and a big state. and eisenhower had run the military. but then you look at senator kennedy, he really didn't have any bac
does business, demanding that the spy agency change its ways. alison kosik in new york with an update on this. >> these are a who's who of wall street, tech giants apple, google, facebook, microsoft, linkedin, twitter and aol banning together and put a letter to president obama and congress and looking to change the way that the government snoops on us while we're online and more specificcally trying to limit the information and collection of information on us. the tech leaders are worried if people won't use their technology because they don't trust it, that will hurt them in the long run. president obama said the nsa does not listen in on phone calls but outside the borders the president says the nsa is more aggressive. the idea of big brother keeping track of our activity online just not sitting well with these companies. john? >> so alison, here is the thing. i feel like facebook and google know more about me than my wife does. isn't it a little bit hypocritical for some of the companies to talk about privacy issues? >> i think it is a little bit of hypocrisy going on. google and
at the global problem with republicans, it's two things. one is there's a huge gender gap. it's not new, but it's a lot worse than it used to be. in 2012, mitt romney had the biggest gender gap in history, 12 points between he and barack oba obama. that's one thing, female voters. the other problem is they don't have -- >> members. >> enough members in order to roach out to the voters. and just look at these numbers. they're really stark. 232 members of the house republican caucus. 19, brooke, 19 of those are women. that's all. so they're trying to do two things. one is appeal to women to run. and try to get some of the female candidates running to win. but also try to get female voters to support their republican candidates, men or women. >> do you think john boehner is comp tntd in this sensitivity training? think it will work? >> you know, unclear. unclear, but it is really, really interesting, just really quickly, what they're doing. it's broad media training. every candidate has it and both parties do it, but they're adding an element of explaining that, you know, not only should you not s
